Police Remind Residents To ‘Park Smart’ After Rash Of Car Break-Ins

CREATED May 30, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Following a recent rash of break-ins in south Nashville, Metropolitan Nashville Police want to remind residents to “Park Smart.”

Officers said that means locking your vehicle, securing your valuables, and taking your keys with you.

At least seven vehicles were broken into on Enclave Circle on Thursday morning.

Officers said don't get a false sense of security just because you're parked at home or in your apartment complex.

“Often times they’re after the same items, which tend to be either GPS systems, cell phones, computers, bags… but people can leave other things of value in vehicles that can be rather expensive,” said Metro Police Sgt. Taylor Schmitz.

Officers in downtown Nashville will also be putting their "Park Smart!" cards on vehicles with items left in plain view during next week’s CMA Music Festival.
